Not cheap, but the $23 “rhapsody in ’cue” was a huge plate of food. Bonus points for the name. Long wait on a Saturday night with somewhat hectic service, but worth it in the end.

Nice atmosphere. Sat out front in their outdoor seating. The food was good, but only average. Not the best bbq I’ve had. The pulled pork I had was dry and my friend was a bit disappointed by the rib sampler. They also have jazz downstairs which seems pretty cool.

Warm Barbecued Potato Chips

Tasty combo of bbq chips and a blue cheese dip

Pulled Pork Platter with Pit Beans, Slaw and Homemade White Bread

Pork was a little dry and could have used a bit more sauce/flavor. Sides were good. I’m not usually a big fan of slaw, but their take on it was enjoyable.

This is the best BBQ ribs I have outside of Texas. The sauce is tasty, ribs are juicy, the price is reasonable with tons of food. Even the chipotle wings are excellent, big plum juicy wings with beer is heaven. If you like jazz, go to the jazz standard for the jazz show along with the ribs. What more can you ask for?

Medium pricey but totally worthwhile. Go for lunch if you can. The sauces are out of this world, and the brisket (which is just about all I eat BBQ) is perfect. Seriously.

I love the St. Louis Spareribs and they have a selection of BBQ sauces you can use. For a side, the collard greens are amazing as are the sweet potato fries. Great setting and the wait staff is courteous.

This is the best place to get BBQ ribs in NYC. There’s a bunch of choices to choose from. Whenever I come here, I usually get the Memphis Babyback Ribs(lean) and sometimes the St. Louis Spareribs(marbled). As for sides, I LOVE the sweet potato fries with maple dip. I always ask for extra maple dip (sort of sour cream meets maple syrup…you gotta try it). As for dessert, I always order the sticky toffee pudding. Yum!!!!

You may have a hard time getting a seat . . .or finding finger Mac n’ Cheese in the city. Blue Smoke’s rendition is (predictably) smokey . . . and just a precursor to the many savory BBQ dishes populating the menu. The rib sampler offers the K.C., Carolina, and Texas renditions, while the Chipotle Chicken Wings appetizer is an entree in itself. Whatever you order, try one of their Bourbon selections or one of their potently sweet margaritas (Blood Orange especially)

If you like to chew on rubber

then Blue Smoke is the place for you. After reading mixed reviews and visiting their very well maintained and appetizing website, I decided to try the place out for myself. Although my party was seated right away, the service was quite…

  • The Jazz Standard, a live jazz club, is downstairs. Two sets play weeknights, three on Fridays and Saturdays, and the cover varies ($15-$30). The full Blue Smoke menu is served, and there's no food or drink minimum.
  • Booths in the upstairs mezzanine are best for people-watching.
  • There's a great selection of beers on tap, but don't overlook root beer or creamsicle ice cream floats. Unlimited refills on iced tea.

From OpenTable: 

Blue Smoke celebrates the evolving American South and honors its culinary traditions. Inspired by the many regions of the South, from the Carolina coast to the hills of central Texas, Executive Chef Jean-Paul Bourgeois’ menu is soulful with a selection of smoked meats, fresh produce, and thoughtfully sourced ingredients. Classic and specialty cocktails, an extensive American craft beer list, American wines and whiskey served by a welcoming team complete the experience.

The flagship Blue Smoke, with the club Jazz Standard, is located on East 27th Street in New York City, and a second location opened in 2012 in NYC’s Battery Park City.
